their fences are being cut in the cattle are being let loose. people breaking into their houses and stealing their cars and trucks. they don't feel safe with their children. it is unfortunate this president doesn't seem to care and doesn't have the time to meet with any of these people that have suffered. >> it breaks my heart to see what joe biden has done, secretary mayorkas with the cartels, making record profits and undermining and destabilizing mexico. while paying the cost. once again, we have talked about this before but on the terror watch list, records amounts of people and less safe then the biden administration policies. it starts with a simple enforcing of the law as it is. >> todd: did you hear about this? illegal border crossings plummeting in a mile-long stretch of el paso after texas expanded its wired fence. the texas national guard is serving as a visual deterrent.

the airlines during the lockdowns actually went. as of this morning, more than 3700 flights have been canceled nationwide with southwest accounting for more than 2300 of them cure the transportation secretary says, it is no longer an issue. >> we are past the point where they could say this is a weather trip an issue the rest of the mediation system is down to about 4% of flights being canceled has reported, north of 60% right now when it comes to southwest. what this indicates is a system failure. >> todd: pete buttigieg facing his own criticism has been learned he was actually warned about something like this happening months ago. former democratic ohio state senator turner taking to twitter, "this is what placing unqualified people in positions of power to do the bidding of corporations will get you. there is a direct line from secretary buttigieg to the airlines debacle and we
1:07 am
shouldn't pretend there isn't. the southwest pilot association backing up the claim saying these issues have been ignored at the highest level. watch. >> southwest wasn't prepared and unfortunately this is a decade in the making. we have a sound of the alarm bells, we have tried to get them to change processes, but it's a combination of outdated technology and infrastructure. >> todd: pressure is continuing to amount on the biden administration to get ramp reimbursed for the airlines meltdown. that is the least they can do at this point my ashley. that quote struck me because that was not from tucker's monologue but the most progressive far left members that speaks out on such issues and politics. it was only a state senator but very vocal. for her to say that and point out the absolute unqualified status pete buttigieg to handle a situation like this is very telling. >> ashley: right, of course it
1:08 am
will be on the transportation secretary to contact the corporations but i also read the investment was a huge problem and clearly not a weather issue anymore. but you have employees saying not being able to communicate, southwest airlines workers think they could not. they had the the planes ready to go. but they didn't have the staff, the pilots but once again we have been talking about this all year long from 2021 and 22022 here. i think it was also a staffing issue. it could have been a pilot issue. we have been talking about this and nobody is fixing this but it came to a boiling point and it is a huge issue and a huge problem. i just wonder how they will fix it because as we said in the intro, they got $7 billion bailout spirit i understand they have to keep paying their employees. keep paying their health
1:09 am
insurance, but you have to allocate that money a little bit different in preparation of t this. if you're's phone systems are where employees can get a hold of you, something has to be changed. if it needs to be enforced by the federal government but this has to change because this is unacceptable. all those people waiting in line who missed christmas with their families pay for this with their taxpayer dollars. >> todd: take a look at your own phone and you know instinctively when it's time to get a new one. the systems in south was not a few years old but decades-old and they know that this is a problem that they continuously ignored it despite to your point, you see that $7 billion in bailout money and we do need answers, where did that money go? that money was designed to keep employees of southwest and other money received in their employee despite we are going through a pandemic. a lot of people ended up leaving, getting fired over faxing mandates and the like. so where did the money go?
1:10 am
did it stop -- did it go to places with seo payments and things along that line? to the extent that money is wasted, that is a huge issue especially when you look at the screen. not only people missing christmas and that is bad enough you have full families with children, infants at an airport for five days. that cannot happen! that is un-american! this is what happens to an extent, ashley, you hire someone to do a job based on politics alone. pete buttigieg and on both sides of the aisle should not have and republicans have said, somebody like i don't know the guy in charge of fedex who understands logistics and many other companies with logistics would have been a perfect choice for transportation secretary. a job literally to come to the floor. the mayor of south bend accused of not being able to fix the pot holes in his very, very tiny town, which is mostly the university of notre dame, should
1:11 am
not have become the transportation secretary. >> ashley: right. americans and crewmembers sleep on air force one, presi president biden enjoying a million dollar home in the year like virgin islands. to several rental, it could cost up to $5,000 a night. >> todd: my guess is that it is more than that. this is a beautiful home. it seems like americans are fed up with the spirit in new polling shows 65% of people know that the u.s. is heading in the wrong direction. they are ready for real change in 2024. as we know what americans are looking for in the next president. 50% say the president 51% to 65 years of age and 65% someone with experience as a governor or senator. more than half hoping someone will compromise to get things done and 55% want someone with business background. 46% of voters looking for a candidate who has served in the military.
1:12 am
>> ashley: and speculating president biden can use this time in the virgin islands to overhaul the territories infrastructure, even as the u.s. struggles with nationwide energy shortages. >> todd: former keystone xl pipeline worker, great to have you. speculation like ashley said to push solar and solar in the caribbean but in the meantime people are dead upstate new york. we mentioned that multiple times this week thanks to a complete failure of government out there. we have been talking about the southwest debacle but your reaction to joe biden's priorities. >> my reaction to his priorities is the same as him taking office. it seems to the rest of the world, they forget about their obligations and come to the u.s. taxpayer is looking for a bailout. that is probably what we got going on. they had hurricane damage in the taxpayers have spent upwards of
1:13 am
$2 billion for building infrastructure. and just a few years ago that they switched over to propane system. the virgin islands used to burn any oil for the producer of electricity. but what happened is they stop making their bond payments on the system, and they are looking for basically a handout. they see what the administration wants to do with wind and solar. basically they want the electrical grid for free. >> ashley: neil and want to talk about the wall street journal op-ed on the electric grid. emergency. the grid is supposed to be resilience but the governments for green energy transition with systemic vulnerabilities that politicians don't want to acknowledge. utility and grid operators were not prepare for the surge of natural gas and electricity to heat homes, which occurred as gas supply shortages. i seek temperatures forced power
1:14 am
plants off-line. is this an indication how the rest of the winter is going to look? winter just started and we've already seen a catastrophe. >> i don't believe it is just an indication how the winter will look but the future is going to be like if we keep pushing a mandate and the green energy policies. we've got energy companies to spend money to make the upgrades. they are being told if you don't do wind or solar, you will not do anything. that is a dangerous situation to be in. 70% of it still runs on oil and gas peer at the infrastructure will put us in a dangerous place in the future. >> todd: as someone who knows the energy industry knows how the grid system itself works, how close are we to a catastrophe whereby the grid may be off-line for weeks, months at a time during a time, let's say during the heat of the summer or the cool of the winter where
1:15 am
quite frankly americans are not used to dealing with a problem like that? >> i think we have seen just here in the recent past how actually close we are. what happen in texas a few years ago in the winter. we see what happens in california almost every summer. that is because we have these private companies but too much government influence about what they can and can't do. >> ashley: do you think the administration is really pushing this green energy too hard and too fast in america cannot keep up, especially with the grid system? >> will, i believe you are about that. they let the public make up their own minds. if you put solar panels on your house, go ahead and if you want to buy electric car, go ahead. but to mandate it and force it, i believe is a dangerous situation. we are just not ready for it right now. >> todd: aside from entirely
1:16 am
leading to utilities do what they need to do, we move all government to interference. can we do anything to prevent a real emergency like this? or do you fear it is inevitable to continue to go down this path? >> you know i think we dodged a real with this hurricane season as we have seen how low the energy inventory was. it wouldn't take but a small hurricane from the gulf of mexico to reduce reduction. as bad as i hate to say it, we are looking at something like that happening in the near future. >> todd: that is petrifying because let's face it, we are not tough right now as american people by and large. we are used to creature comforts and to lose energy for a long time. it will cause major problems. neal crabtree we appreciate your honesty this morning. the january 6 house committee with former president donald trump to testify, "in light of the
1:17 am
investigation select committee can no longer pursue specific information covered by the subpoena." taking to social, they did something because they know i did nothing wrong or about to lose a court committee and set to dissolve january 3rd. >> ashley: new york district attorney investing congressman elect george santos after he had committed to telling major lies on the campaign trail. the county d.a. says the rumors fabrications and inconsistencies with congressman elect santos nothing less than stunning. no one is above the law and crime was committed in this county. we will prosecute it. in the meantime federal prosecutors looking into santos public filings as emerge over where he made his money. santos is being accused of lying about his work, background, education and family history. and tulsi gabbard did not let santos off easy this week, watch

1:19 am
>> ashley: new york republican congressman mike waller asking for an investigation and santos owes the people of the complete total truth. he needs to minimize his actions but it only makes things worse. he should cooperate if he is to regain the trust of his constituents and colleagues. >> todd: pope francis for pope benedict xvi and 95-year-old is very sick. the vatican saying in the last few hours, there has been deterioration due to the advancement of benedict's age. the moment remains under control and continually monitored by his doctors. he served as the head of the roman catholic church 2005-2013 and the first pope nearly 600 years to step down. they attributed that to section two to his age at the time. we have our prayers and we will keep you updated on his condition. 19 minutes after the hour in ohio police officer finds himself in the path of

1:30 am
our investment. that money is cutting russia's army down to size, which is a good thing for us. if ukraine is an effective counterweight to russia, that is our best opportunity to bid for it to deal with china. ukraine is also driving a wedge between russia and china and emphasizing china has got to be having buyer's remorse over there and support for russia with a failed invasion to ukraine. a demonstration nuclear armed state cannot impose its will on a weaker neighbor, which is important and has serious ramification for china's to reunify not so peacefully through military needs from taiwan. >> todd: dan, thank you so much, happy new year. crime in several major cities rising in 2022 enzyme leaders would rather help out the criminals than the victims. experience first hand as he left his job as a chicago 911 dispatcher from lori lightfoot's failure in leadership. he will share his thoughts next. >> ashley: sick and tired of a

1:39 am
movement, at least in the past year or so. but it brings me to the point the police departments are understaffed. people have come on here, family members of those who have had loved ones killed in the major cities. they say the police departments understaffed is not their only issue. a leadership issue with the state level, local level, and a national level. what do you think? >> you are absolutely right, ashley, good morning to you. it is officers leaving the departments and going through the rest of the country but the lot better of the system but not so liberal with progressive state so they are working on going to another state. but you have officers and let's be real 23 chicago police officer since 2018 have committed suicide and this number is staggering and going up. we had several suicides with chicago police officers the last few weeks. and a total of seven this year alone but let me just tell you,
1:40 am
ashley we are in trying times. and as i heard in the interviews you just had, some say dying times with the violence taking place. i work in los angeles as a police officer, and what is going on there is what's going on here in chicago and throughout the nation. these are times we have to call on leadership. we have to get and do what is right for the people. it is simple, they need to get in and say this is unacceptable, b.s., tell them like it is. this is my city, this is my state, whatever that may be, get in there and do what you have to do. we don't have that right now, ashley. >> ashley: in reference to the police suicide they are now calling this time of year suicide season for the police. that is no joke. that is coming directly from the police officers. but a study shows the young men in chicago and philly more likely to be shot and killed than afghanistan and iraq wars. those are two major cities.
1:41 am
how can we change those numbers coming into 2023? >> first of all, we need great people who will go into office and stop the nonsense. we have three major elements of criminal justice. we all know this, law enforcement, judicial system and correction system. two of those big elements of the criminal system are broken. big cities l.a., chicago, new york are broken. the judicial systems are coming up with nonsensical laws people in and out of court. the moment they are arrested for big things, they are right out back again. and the safety act in illinois, the correction system, they are not correcting a darn thing. so this takes a beating on the officers but more importantly it takes a beating on the good men and women who live in the major cities and they become victimized and it's like they don't care. so the progressively funded politicians and the progressively funded prosecutors throughout the country, that is what needs to change.
1:42 am
they have to get out of office when he told them accountable to what their job should be and that is taking care of the people. >> ashley: is anyone in our country safe if we can't keep our citizens of the major cities safe? >> no, no one is safe at this time in the big cities because we have a bunch of individuals running our cities and our departments, and they just don't care. they are lori lightfoot doesn't care a pair that is why i stepped down from being a dispatcher here. i absolutely love that position but i do something else has a supervisor. she absolutely does not care. i cannot hear more screaming voices in my ears and telling individuals police were coming when i knew they were not coming. i don't stand by that and we need someone different in the city and other cities, ashley. >> ashley: keith, do you think the media played a big role in this when they first defund the police movement and you heard all this progressive rhetoric? >> absolutely. you know, you have these people out there, some defund the police and black lives matter and all of that is nonsense to
1:43 am
me, nonsense rhetoric. the media has done a good job in some ways putting it out there because it's good to know that. that is what they are here to to but nonsense spewing away with those different things as if the police are out here killing them. do we have troubled officers out there? darn right we do and we go after those people and get them out of the departments. we do what we have to do to criminally prosecute them. absolutely we do but the 99% of the officers in the united states are great hardworking men and women who bust their behind spear just like me and you, actually they come to a job that is think they'll make thankless but we need them. the impoverished area of chicago or l.a. and those people, black, white, hispanic, asian, they will tell you they support their officers. but they need an effective leader in office to stop this rhetoric and also with the media as well. >> ashley: they really need to get on board with safety for america and backing the blue.
